Early on in Shelley’s novel, Victor Frankenstein’s parents pass a poor cot “while the number of half-clothed children [gather]” (16). Heartwarmingly, Victor’s parents eventually adopt one of the orphans, Elizabeth. Although a family of wealth and success, Victor’s parents decide to enter the messiness of others’ lives to hopefully aid in any possible method. To possess the confidence to break social class lines and use their rank to support the less fortunate is a truly admirable ability. Later on, Victor himself encounters an honorable man by the name of Mr. Kirwin.
The mills (factories) were built, and instead of using men to run the textile (fabrics) mills, the Boston Associates used “healthy, young, farm girls to work the mills.” Often the girls were very young and were separated from their families, lived in boarding houses, and saved some of their very low wages to send back home to their parents and to save up for their dowries (to give to future husbands). At first, when Andrew Jackson came through, he saw the mill girls dressed nicely, with parasols (fancy umbrellas) walking together. President Jackson was impressed and compared these pretty mill girls with the dirty, ugly, girl workers in England, who were dressed in rags. When the girls were working, they were supervised by strict men all day. Life as a mill girl at the beginning of the American Industrial Revolution was very hard.
It is a love that Kanaalaq almost innately possesses, as she selflessly and wordlessly feeds, clothes, and heals her companion, no questions asked. Later in the film, these qualities come to the fore as she shares the story of how her mother left her starving family so that her children could have her share of food and how she herself bit her own wrist to let her dying sister drink her blood. Kanaalaq laughs as she tells this last bit, marvelling at how she “tricked” Tarqeq, the moon god, by saving her sister’s life. When Charlie and Kanaalaq find a wrecked plane containing a partly burn corpse but also a trove of tools and weapons, he does not understand, at first, why Kanaalaq refuses to go near any of the dead man’s belongings. Instead, she builds a funeral cairn for the body and buries his tools with him.
Safie searched for the Felix and arrived at De Lacey’s cottage. She was barely literate of history and French language. At the cottage, Safie learned French, performed her music, understand French music and gain knowledge of history, the daily lessons taught by the family, especially by Felix. “The discovery of the American hemisphere and wept over the hapless fate of the original inhabitants” (Frankenstein, 100). Safie’s entrancingly beautiful music and lively conversation wept away sadness from the family.
A little girl, who loved reading in her favorite bookstore, was trying to help Mrs. Wades to keep her bookstore open by organizing a block party to raise money. Just like Liesel, Destiny wrote her own book to Mrs. Wade as a gift. Second, this book tells us about people’ kindness, and at the same time emphasizes their cruelty. The examples of kindness would be Rudy giving the teddy bear to the dying pilot or diving after Liesel’s book thrown by Viktor in the river; Hans giving a piece of bread to a starving Jew on the street and taking his Jewish neighbor side when he was taken by the Nazi; mayor’s wife inviting Liesel to read in her library for free and even letting her steal her books. Viktor Chemmel and Franz Deutcher are examples of cruel personalities; concentration camps give us goose bumps on the very sound of the word itself.
The employees of Otto’s office helped supplied the Franks with food, and information of the outside world. In this diary, Anne wrote a lot about her feelings. She would write about how she adored her father and how her mother lacked in love and affection. She did not write much about her sister Margot. In this dairy, Anne developed a strong bond with Peter
In Deborah Ellis’s The Breadwinner, Parvana is a young woman who must become a boy to get food for the family and I have decided to compare and contrast her to the courageous Harriet Tubman.

Huck then goes on to run off from Pap and the Widow Douglas embarking on an adventure with a runaway slave named Jim. His adventures revolve around the lies he creates and come close with a family. He goes on to met many females and sees his point of view from the way they are portrayed compared to men, to the daily task they completes. Mark Twain displays the traditional lifestyle of women during the ?(1830’s/40’s)?
In the first paragraph, Swift begins to use imagery by speaking of melancholy streets with female beggars along with their children standing in the cabin-doors asking every passenger for alms (Swift 1). This sets a vivid image of poor, dirty, children clinging to their mothers with their hands stretched out asking for shillings. In the story Swift talks of a well-known English friend who says a one-year-old child is delicious and nourishing whether baked, boiled, or stewed (Swift 2). This disturbing and twisted image of a young child being cooked and eaten is instilled into the reader’s head. This imagery is used to establish the horror of the children’s lives and to set the English up as monsters.
There were five boys and seven girls. Since Beatrice was one of the oldest children, she was tasked with taking care of her younger siblings quite often. One day she went to town and bought her little brother a brand new outfit. She sat him on a quilt out in the yard and took a picture of him. This picture of her “little cutie pie” has been in her wallet ever since.

(Martyris). Tubman was able to express herself in many ways using simple food metaphors to compare herself to other people or how she felt but using food to describe it. In 1849, Tubman feared she would be sold like her two sisters had been and Tubman escaped to Philadelphia. She travelled to Baltimore and New Jersey, where in order to support herself and raise money to go back to rescue her family, and spent the summer of 1852 working as a cook in a resort at fashionable Cape May, N.J. She used her wages to pay for a raid that freed nine slaves. Tubman cared for others knowing that she had to do so much to get where she needed to go.
Her mom thought that every child had the right to an education, and her hole family encouraged her to learn all she could. Nellie spent most of her life as a wife, mother, teacher, lecturer, legislator and writer. Her dream was to become a teacher like her sister named Hannah, teaching was very limited to women… Nellie earned a teaching certificate at the age of sixteen and taught until she got married in 1896. Nellie struggled with her husband as he was a druggy and had to raise five children at the same time. Nellie McClung’s greatest achievements were women’s suffrage movement, temperance movement, and later the Person’s Case with assitance from the “Famous Five.
Both poems contain like themes, similar yet disparate tones, and differ in their language use. The poems both contain a theme of the importance a parent plays in their child’s life, and the idea of a gift. In “The Lanyard,” Collins describes his mother’s care in detail, explaining that she “nursed me in many a sick room,” “taught me to walk and swim,” and “gave me life and milk from her breasts.” The gift is the lanyard the speaker gives his mother, which is represented as meaningless in comparison to all the mother has done for the speaker. In “The Gift,” Lee
